Please Help -- Erroneous Lines from Auto-Paper-Feeder

Sharp AL 1661CS; There are extra-erroneous lines when copy/fax originals through the auto-feeder. But, the lines are not there when the pages are individually placed on the copier face. What could be the problem?? I have just replaced the Toner and the Drum. Your response and help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Daniel.

Not familiar with this particular machine, but it sounds like one which uses a seperate scanner when drawing originals from the sheet feeder. Have a look to see if there's a glass strip to the side of the main copier face. If so, give that a careful clean. A.

Dear Sharp Al-2030 Experts: Paper Copies made from the cover-mounted auto-feed system are produced with a full copy-length thin double line separated by an approximately 1 13/16" wide distance. It is...

There is something on your scan glass. If you get lines through the document feeder but not on copies made off the glass then it is a dirty scan glass. There is a thin glass strip where the document feeder feeds the original. Usually something like white out that did not dry smears off an original and ends up on this thin strip of glass. Scratch it off with your finger nail and use some glass cleaner to resolve the problem. The scan glass is about 1/2 an inch to an inch wide and will be on the same side of the machine that the copier feeds the originals in on. Once the glass is clean your problem is solved!

Two lines, one on each side of copies made from feeder and faxes

Try cleaning the rollers inside the scanner including the glass inside and out with a soft damped cloth. Look also for a piece of paper, staple wires, paper clips or pencil lead jammed inside the rollers or somewhere in the corner.
Also, look for a foreign object or substance on the cold cathode tube light and clean it. Try also cleaning the mirror.

Bad copy from Sharp AL-1661CS

Try print from a pc, if those lines still appear then you should replace the drum unit. If not then clean the copy glass and the scanning mirrors.

I have a Sharp AL-1661CS copier fax machine and the paper is getting stuck when we try faxing. Paper goes 3/4 of the way thru and then gets stuck. Help

If there is lead edge damage on the original, open up the feeder section and line up the damage with the paper path. look for foreign objects or damaged guides.
If there is no damage clean the rollers with alcohol. and the sensors with compressed air.(Computer Duster) Try it again.

Hope this is of some help.
